UFC 222 in Las Vegas will feature a new main event and one less championship bout than it was supposed to, following a leg injury to UFC Featherweight champion Max Holloway. Still, with an exciting women’s Featherweight Championship match between Cris Cyborg and Russian Invicta fighter Yana Kunitskaya, and a replacement match between Frankie Edgar and Brian Ortega for #1 contender rights against Holloway, the main events for 222 are nothing to sneeze at. Throw in a Heavyweight clash between Andrei Arlovski and the seven-foot-tall Dutchman, Stefan Struve, an unbeaten streak on the line for Ketlen Vieira against Cat Zingano, and another much-talked-about appearance for rising bantamweight superstar “Sugar” Sean O’Malley, this time against Andre Soukhamthath, and you’ve got some potentially career-altering matches on the main card. Though I suppose when you beat people to a pulp for a living, most any match can be potentially career-altering.
The preliminary matches for UFC 222 are split between Fox Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass, with Fight Pass broadcasting early prelim matches featuring Mike Pyle vs. Zack Ottow, Bryan Caraway vs. Cody Stamann, and Jordan Johnson vs. Adam Milstead. Fox Sports 1 will broadcast the latter four preliminary matches: Ashley Yoder vs. Mackenzie Dern, Beneil Dariush vs. Alexander Hernandez, John Dodson vs. Pedro Munhoz, and C.B. Dolloway vs. Hector Lombard. Expect to see some KOs, some submissions, and yes, a lot of bad tattoos.
All times are in Eastern Time Zone (EST).
